Mas Fi Brut and Brut Rosé Cava are produced and bottled by the 42-hectare Masachs Estate. It was at the turn of last century when the Masachs family started to cultivate grapes in their estate located in Vilafranca del Penedès, a wine area par excellence, where the growing of grapes had already been introduced in times of the Roman Empire. Mr. Josep Masachs Llorach, a man with strong convictions, great character, and dedicated since his childhood to the growing of grapes, founded Cavas Masachs in the 1920’s, producing cava in the best tradition of craftsmanship and with a limited production, meant primarily for his own consumption and to make it known to his closest friends. Later, his son, Mr. Josep Masachs Juvé, continued his father’s tradition under the same policy of very limited production and craftsmanship combined with hard work with the aim to improve the quality of his cavas.
“When I first went to Rioja in 2006 I saw these wonderful old trailers bearing fruit coming into the wineries. The trailers themselves are often two or three generations old. Some, once drawn by horse, have been converted to work with a tractor and are still in use. I was struck by the arrangement of the letters on the license plates, which indicate the region of Spain the tractor is registered in. In Rioja, the letters read LO-VE. The ‘LO’ indicates the capitol city, Logroño, the ‘VE’ is for Vehículo Especial. Native Spaniards didn’t notice the english connection. In this joke I had with myself I felt all of the things I love about Spain come together. In my 10 years here I have found wines of great value, beauty and intensity. The wines are complex and guided by their terroir, which is unique and distinct from any other winemaking region on earth.” - Arthur O’Connor, Winemaker
